PRESS RELEASE

MINIATURE GEAR-DRIVE ROTARY STAGES WITH CLEAR APERTURES FOR ACCURATE, ECONOMICAL POSITIONING

New MPS-GR Series from Aerotech has two motor options and two sizes

Compact, low profile MPS-GR rotary stages from Aerotech (www.aerotech.com) provide accurate, economical positioning for both laboratory and industrial applications. Clear apertures of 20 or 30 mm allow the stages to be used effectively where through-holes are required. These applications include articulation of beam polarizing lenses, through-holes for cabling or air lines, or vision/camera/inspection.

Applications include:
• Optics, photonics
• Lasers
• Medical equipment
• Semiconductor
• Data storage
• Genome devices

Designed for 360-degree measurement, alignment and inspection in optics, photonics and lasers, the stages incorporate a precision worm-gear drive mechanism and bearing components. They are available with DC servo or stepper motors. Accuracy is up to 80 arc seconds, resolution is 1 arc second, repeatability is 6 arc seconds, and maximum speed is 180 degrees per second. Top load capacity is 12 kg.

Both stages are available with optional vacuum preparation to 10-6 torr including a vacuum-rated motor/feedback connector. An optional breadboard mounting plate provides direct mounting to both English and metric optical tables and a Lens Mount Option (LMO) permits easy mounting of standard lenses over the stage aperture.

The rotary stages can be easily mounted together in numerous combinations with linear, goniometer and vertical-lift units in Aerotech’s MPS (Miniature Position Stage) family.

Aerotech (www.aerotech.com) is a leading supplier of motion control products to industry, government, science and research institutions around the world. Its precision products provide critical performance for demanding applications requiring high precision, high-throughput motion control solutions.
